8:30 PM Eastern Standard Time Patrick's Tuesday Night Review with THE SELECTRIC.

THE SELECTRICS

Blending a futuristic turn of 60's girl group pop and the updated roar of Phil Spector's 'Wall of Sound'--The Selectrics are a fresh melodic standout band standing squarely between indie cacophony and the slick lab driven radio drone.

"Greg and I became friends on the set of a television show."  Says Selectrics singer Gina Marie.  A working actress in LA, Gina began a musical collaboration with Smash Mouth guitarist and chief songwriter, Greg Camp (All Star, Walking on the Sun).  Their initial idea was to record holiday songs for friends and family.  "We picked classic and obscure songs." Gina says.  "The sound we ended up with became the foundation for The Selectrics original album.” Greg states, “The influence varies but the obvious is the recording style of Phil Spector and the artists that he worked with.  When I asked Gina in the beginning what she envisioned the band to sound like she replied "Boots" by Nancy Sinatra meets The Cramps.  We also listen to a lot of 60's French pop, Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot."
